Mewtwo has a pretty dark history – born from a pregnant Mew, who was found deep in Guyana’s jungles, with its embryo tampered with to alter its DNA.
Mew was kidnapped and held in Giovanni’s mansion where a Team Rocket scientist, Blaine, in Tauros the Tyrant performed horrific gene-splicing experiments on the poor creature to make it more vicious and powerful. When Mew cells were not enough to finish the creation, he added his own human DNA.
However, Mew eventually broke free from the mansion, destroying it in the process. The resulting Mew baby, aka Mewtwo, lacks compassion, and its glowing Purple eyes are enough to strike fear into its enemy. Mewtwo is bipedal, with a humanoid form.
It has always been an important part of Pokemon anime and movies. Even though there is no original Pokemon manga series, many spin-off manga based on Pokemon are released every few months.
These mangas fall under a subcategory of comics and graphic novels with their own storyline and take on the Pokemon world. One such Pokemon gag-manga, Pokemon Pocket Monsters, introduced a new version of Mewtwo.
In that manga, during Mewtwo’s creation, a Clefairy absorbed some of Mewtwo’s DNA and took a Mewtwo-like form. It immediately turned back to its original form, though.
This gag was a direct take on Mewthree rumors which were circulating among fans over the internet.
When a Pokemon absorbs some of Clefairy’s DNA, it gives them a temporary boost in power. So this pseudo-Mewthree might not be stronger than Mewtwo, but it is stronger than a standard Clefairy.
However, this leads to a whole new idea of a real Mewthree. A Mewtwo can absorb Clefairy’s DNA and temporarily turn into a godlike Mewthree.
Even though Mewtwo was specifically crafted to be more powerful than Mew, both seemed to be equal in power during their battle in the first Pokemon movie.
But given the fact that Mew was only playing around in that fight, Mew is considered to be more powerful than Mewtwo. However, if a real Mewthree ever becomes a thing in the original Pokemon series, Mew might get into some trouble.
Pokemon, first released in 1996, is set up in a world where humans catch monsters and store them in pocket-sized poke-balls, thus the name Pocket Monsters or Pokemon.
They are creatures with an affinity to certain elements and some superhuman abilities related to that particular element.
Revolving around a teenage boy Ash Ketchum, it takes us through his journey to becoming the most accomplished Pokemon trainer the world has ever seen.
